She’s the woman he sent away.
Lisette wouldn’t be back in New Orleans if she didn’t need protection—and who better to turn to than her ex-boyfriend turned Detective? She’s got a closet full of secrets that include a stalker ex and a kinky past. She vows to not dream about Mathieu…much. If only he were a Dominant, one who would not just flog her into bliss, but love her as well. A girl can dream, can’t she?
He was her first love.
Mathieu wants nothing to do with another damsel in distress, but he can’t say no when the little blonde woman walks back into his life with proof her ex is big trouble. He’ll give her a place to sleep, but nothing more. His heart is locked up tight. Except, Lisette uncovers his past in the BDSM world and she’s never backed down from a challenge. He can handle her, can’t he?
Lisette and Mathieu embark on a relationship that is strictly about sexual gratification, but evolves into more. When the bodies align, the hearts entwine. Except their rekindled flame is in danger. Lisette’s ex has found his prey, and he’s not afraid of taking a life.
Includes a bonus short story, Picture Her Completed.

“He can’t find you here,” Mathieu said, his voice low.
“You’re right. He can’t.” She smiled, more for him than her.
Now, if she could just believe Mathieu.
“If you don’t have internet, any idea where I could go to use it?” Lisette had
been away from New Orleans for so long her old haunts were gone, destroyed in the wake of Katrina.
“Don’t most cafés offer it now?”
“You seriously don’t use the internet?” Lisette was a complete social media junkie. She’d pulled the plug after Chicago on everything except her website, where she was the anonymous owner of Kinky Girl Blogs. Even the other bloggers didn’t know her identity. Considering the nature of what they all blogged about, it was safer that way.
“Why would I need to? I’ve got an email at work. If anyone needs to talk to me, they can just call me.” Mathieu continued to munch on his sandwich.
Lisette shook her head.
She hadn’t met anyone under about fifty who didn’t have at least an email and
Facebook account. The entire concept was a little strange to her, but she had to remember she was a transient in Mathieu’s life. He didn’t want her there for long.
“Can I ask you a question?” Lisette shifted to face him, bobbing her foot off the couch. Gator took it as an invitation and leaned over to lick the soles of her feet. The muscles in her calves constricted at the alien feel of dog tongue.
Mathieu glanced at her from the corner of his eye. He wanted to tell her no, it was written all over his face. She bet that if it was possible, she’d be gagged and in the closet, but he wasn’t that kind of person. Too bad.
“You’re going to ask me no matter what I say, so get it over with.”
“True, but I thought I’d at least ask your permission.”
She bit her lip for a moment. Did she want to know? Being near Mathieu had brought all the unresolved tension back up, as if they’d split yesterday, not eight years ago.
“Why did you break up with me?” Lisette shoved her sandwich in her mouth despite the churning in her stomach.
*****Mathieu turned to face her. He should have seen this one coming a mile away.
Those memories were better left under lock and key. He’d been at the beginning of a journey back then, and Lisette had stumbled into his path.
They should have never been, but he’d wanted her. Time hadn’t changed it, but maybe explaining it to her would help get his head where it needed to be.
Off her sweet little ass and back on the case.
“Because my sister told me to.”
Lisette blinked at him. She set her sandwich on the plate in her lap and pushed Gator away before he could steal the remains.
“Let me get this straight.” She cleared her throat and her gaze narrowed. “You broke up with me in college because Lola told you to?”
“Yes.” It sounded ridiculous, but Lola had been spot on. She always was.
It can never be said that Sidney Bristol has had a ‘normal’ life. She is a recovering roller derby queen, former missionary, small Sidney THUMBand tattoo addict. She grew up in a motor-home on the US highways (with an occasional jaunt into Canada and Mexico), traveling the rodeo circuit with her parents. Sidney has lived abroad in both Russia and Thailand, working with children and teenagers. She now lives in Texas where she splits her time between a job she loves, writing, reading and belly dancing.
